Passed my test!

I passed my test! Finally! Tonight is Top Chef, to celebrate.

Last night my mum came into town and we went to my house. She had a good time and was impressed with the size of the house.

She has not been feeling well and wanted to have something light for dinner. We made some pasta and salad. I am ashamed to admit then I have never really made my own pasta sauce from scratch. There seem to be so many easy jar sauces out there that I always just use them as a base and work from there. Not last night, not for my mum!

Anyone else like their OJ so chunky that you need a spoon?

Congratulations on passing your test! I'm so happy for you! Homemade pasta sauce is the best, but I usually use a store bought version, too. Yours looks great!
Yay for Top Chef! Kevin is my favorite!

congrats on passing your test!

oh! i love orange green smoothies. they taste just like an orange julius.
i use 1 banana, 2 oranges and about a cup of baby spinach. it's definitely spoon (or big straw) worthy!

Glad you passed! Homemade sauce is always better even if it mostly starts with a can of tomatoes. Looks good!
